Praise the Lord!

I thank God for giving me this opportunity to share this testimony.

When we go outside as family or while going for work/ school we pray as family and I used to pray to have less traffic and get clear of blocks when it gets/ we start late. Some used to ask, “Is God a traffic police?”.

God is our Savior and Helper for small and big things.

 Here is a small example. When we were in Chicago, we shifted our apartment during the last 3 months of Chicago life but the School bus will pickup only at the old apartment, since there was no alternative. So some days my wife will walk and drop her and on other days, I used to drop by car before going to work. It was an area where it connects to highway so the traffic will be high and I need to cross the road to reach the old apartment.  So each day before starting I used to pray for clear traffic and 90% of the time, I got clear traffic to reach the place. It was only by God’s help and not by my strength or any other means.

By this we can find out that God is for small and big things. He helps us in any part of situation in life.

Miracle cure from Fall

Posted on January 13, 2021 by Olby | Miracles, Testimonials

Praise the Lord!

I thank God for giving me this opportunity to share this testimony.

It was during the Covid-19 (Corona) lockdown during April/ May 2020. During this time, it was complete lockdown and we could not go out. We used to give chicken/ mutton bones to street dogs in the evening/ night. During one evening, my daughters and I went down to feed the dogs.

While going down the stairs my younger daughter slipped and hit her lower back on one of the steps. But immediately she got up and walked, I rubbed her back and she was feeling ok. After coming home after sometime she started to get pain and after few minutes on checking she could not bend, she could not sit or squat and on touching she had pain. We applied ice pack and still she was not comfortable.

At that time Bro. Mohan C. Lazarus prayer was going on and he was telling to pray in Jesus name for any illness during prayer time. In faith we applied oil and prayed healing in the name of Jesus and she went to sleep with pain.

Next day morning when we checked, she was able to get-up without any support and she could bend, sit and squat and no pain while touching. All gone without any medicine and hospital visit.

All glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Crow/ Raven – Unity

Posted on December 16, 2020 by Olby | General

Our opposite house has a Neem tree and during this Covid lockdown as many witnessed, this tree also witnessed some bird activities. Some new birds started visiting and there was a crow nest and Myna nest.

Interesting thing is about the crow. One set of crow has made this their territory and not allowing any other birds.

What is special in crow?

We have seen birds bigger than crow like vallur, which comes to visit this place to build nest or for some other purpose for some weeks now. When one crow arrives at the tree the bird flies away. I gave a thought about it and found out that even though the birds are bigger they come alone and their species are at different far off places but crows are distributed nearby and they have good connections. Why are other birds afraid of crows?Because they have unity. If anything happens to one crow all the other crows will gather and fight for their right.

You can learn some facts about the crows in these links – Link1 and Link2.

If we humans have this type of unity, we can achieve more.

Not finding time to Study/ Prepare for Certification exams

Posted on December 11, 2020 by Olby | Best Practices, General

You’re working and find no time to spend time for study on continuous improvement or for preparation of certification examination. Please find below how I prepared:

  1. Stop all your works/ mails and go to bed early.
  2. Go to bed early during the preparation period/ month/ week.
  3. Go as early as 9 or 10 PM maximum.
  4. Wake up as early as 3 or 3.30 AM.
  5. Do not touch your mobile and do not check any emails/ news once you wake up.
  6. Finish your morning prayers and then start preparing till 6  or 6.30 AM.
  7. This will give solid 3 to 3.5 hrs. time to prepare without disturbance.
  8. You will have a fresh mind and give calm mind to prepare.

All the best!

Note: If you’re taking certification training for 1 to 3 days then spend the time to read what is covered each day night before going to bed, this will help in preparation after the training.

WhatsApp – Use & manage

Posted on December 11, 2020 by Olby | Best Practices, General

WhatsApp notifications disturbance:

Are you getting continuous notification from some of your contacts or groups who forwards or send so many messages and its continuously disturbing and its pressing to spend too much time on WhatsApp, then you can do the following:

WhatsApp has this feature which allows you to mute certain contacts or groups notifications. The steps are, open WhatsApp –> select the contact or group –> select the three dots from the top right corner –> Select Mute Notification, this gives three options whether to  mute for 8 hours or 1 week or Always.  This will mute the notification and there will be no notification onscreen and sound. 

Note: You may be having some school/ college groups which gives class notifications and assignments, then do not mute these notifications.

So many messages and clearing takes time:

When you get so many messages and it is taking time to delete daily or need to spend separate time to delete messages in a week or month. The best way to do is when you get a message from your contact or group and while reading if you find that it is important message then select the message and click star, then at the end of the day or next day after getting a new message, you can go to three dots from the top right corner –> select more –> Clear Chat –> Select Delete media in this chat (Select starred messages also to delete the starred messages) –> Clear messages. This will delete all the messages and media together, and no need to spend time to delete individually (Also, this will delete the photos and videos that are stored in your phone gallery). If you didn’t select the starred message option while clear messages then those messages will not be deleted.

Announcements for class – School/ College/ to contacts frequently and not use Groups:

If you want to give any announcement to some of your contacts or to your school or college class, then you can use Broadcast and restrict usage of groups. Groups will make everyone to collaborate and to know each others numbers and contacts. To use the broadcast open WhatsApp –> three dots from the top right corner –> New Broadcast –> Start typing message and add the contacts that you want to frequently give announcements.

Its one time creation and from next time you can just add the message and send, this will go as individual message to each one and not as Group messages and the members that you included in this broadcast will not know each other. With this you respect each others privacy and communicate without creating a group. Broadcast will show like a horn symbol.
